Enjoyed, as always, Zuppa Tuscano. Lobster ravioli are back. Yummy. We also tried the chicken ravioli appetizer. Very flavorful. Full house, but excellent service.

I have been eating at a slightly upscale Italian Restaurant ffor quite some time but decided it was time for a change. I was pleasantly surprised. Food was very good, large portions, moderately priced, friendly staff and moderately priced. Will be visiting there again in the near future.

If I'm looking for a restaurant that offers varied menu selections that are well prepared, the Olive Garden is a great choice. We often eat dinner at Olive Garden and it's great...but--recently, Olive Garden changed their menu that included updating their lunches. I find the lunch specials to be very good. Both great food and great value.

Olive Garden need to improve their wait staffs and food. Okay for good Italian food. Overall, I am not to impress with their menu selection.

The food was as good as always. I did find the service in this particular location wasn't quite as good as other locations. The service was fine, but we had to ask twice for several items and the server wasn't as friendly as I've noticed the servers typically are at the Olive Garden. But we all very much enjoyed our...

Now here's the real winner for me, they had pasta e fagioli on the menu... a southern Italian classic dish and one of my favourites. And it wasn't bad at all, I had two bowls, it was that goodm as you can have endless soups or salads with your main meal. For mains I had the rosemary chicken that came... More

Personally I was disappointed in the food. I had the Fettuccine Alfredo and was almost tastless. Nothing seemed to boost the flavor just tasted like wet pasta.

Pretty basic Olive Garden. I've never seen a bad one yet. We had a good dinner, service was good, although the waitress seemed to have a problem with dirty fingernails, that was the only thing that grossed us out. Great food, the wait for the food was a little long, but not so long that you get mad.

This is an extremely nice venue. The service is extraordinary and the unlimited pasta is exemplary. I can not wait to return to beautiful Winter Haven to visit again.

Olive Garden restaurants are, if nothing else, consistent. Not tonight. The front of house staff were great (as usual). Johnny, our server did an excellent job; but the food?!? Our appetizer of Grilled Chicken Flatbread was drowned in Alfredo sauce, sloppy soggy presentation, yet the bottom was burnt - black in spots. The Chicken Parm was also burnt on the... More
